Dental Implants
Permanent, Secure Tooth Replacement

Your teeth are important! Studies have shown that first impressions, self-confidence and a person's character can all be correlated to their smile. Because each tooth acts in unison with neighboring and opposing teeth, it is important to replace a missing tooth and even more important to replace several missing teeth. This will prevent bone loss and the destructive shifting of surrounding natural teeth.

Dental Implants are well suited to adults of all ages.

Dental Implants are fast becoming the best option for tooth replacement for many patients. A dental implant is a biocompatible post that is placed in the jawbone that will act much like the root of a tooth, by which a crown, bridge or even a denture can be supported. Patients enjoy high success rates in treatment and improved confidence in their appearance and dental function with dental implants.

Do You have Missing or Broken Teeth?
You may be a candidate for Dental Implants.

  1. A healthy smile not only helps you smile and chew properly, it provides important structural support for the facial muscles and skin. Teeth help maintain the height and relationship of the upper and lower jaw.
  2. If multiple teeth are lost, facial muscles relax and the skin begins to sag due to loss of support. This generally affects the appearance of the jaw, lips and cheeks.
  3. Not only does adult tooth loss affect facial and smile appearance, without the stimulation of vital teeth, jaw bone loss will follow, putting any remaining teeth at risk.

Rebuild Your Smile with Dental Implants

Dental implants replace lost tooth roots to provide a stable foundation for tooth replacement with a crown, bridge or denture. Watch a Video about Dental Implants to learn more.

Winterville dentist Dr. Phillip Durden has completed extensive training and has years of experience in the placement of dental implants. He has helped numerous patients restore their dental health with dental implant smile reconstruction.

Reasons for considering dental implants as the treatment of choice for missing teeth are:

  • Proven longevity
  • Ideal function
  • Beautiful esthetics
  • Preservation of existing jaw bone
  • Restorations do not require alteration of adjacent teeth
  • Excellent support for crowns, bridges, and dentures
  • Great solution for slipping or unstable dentures (SynCone Overdenture System)
  • Adaptable to individual patient circumstances
  • Patient satisfaction

Dental Implants are an excellent remedy for replacing missing teeth.

Depending on your situation, dental implants can be placed in one or two stages:

  • One Stage: the implant is placed in the jawbone and immediately loaded with your new crown, bridge or denture.
  • Two Stage: the implant is placed in the jawbone and allowed to heal for a prescribed period of time after which a crown, bridge or denture will be placed.

Care of your implant-supported teeth is similar to the care of natural teeth. Our hygienist will assist you with an easy to follow regimen of daily care. Dental Implants are an excellent remedy for replacing missing teeth and restoring your smile. Dr. Durden and Team would be pleased to discuss your individual needs.
